Every season allows you to appreciate your home in a new way. In winter, it's all about cozying up. But come summer, we're ready to bust open the windows, turn it up to 11, and bring in new fun and colors. The following items embody the type of dynamic cheer we crave in a summer home refresh. Best of all? Nothing's over $100, so you can save your pennies for other things ... or just get extra stocked on summer decor.
Add a bit of glitz and levity to your living room situation with this Old Hollwood-esque pillow.
For less than $15, this little vase will pack a whole bunch of personality into a bedroom. Better yet, buy another two and you can create a floral vignette.
Give a patio some extra comfort with this boho pouf.
Yellow is definitely a color we associate with summer, but we appreciate that this affordable area rug offers a more muted way to work the friendly hue.
Not only is this mirror functional, it'll also bring texture to a bathroom or gallery wall.
